Mark Zuckerberg recently “liked” a new application, Friendsheet, says All Facebook’s Jackie Cohen.Zuckerberg may be looking at Pinterest as a way to improve its social photo sharing experience, especially on mobile devices.

Friendsheet turns Facebook photos into a Pinterest-like grid. It was created two months ago by Zachary Allia.

Instead of pinning photos, Friendsheet scans your friends’ Facebook walls and pulls out images. Users can also upload new photos to Friendsheet.

Images can’t be repinned or saved on Friendsheet. They can only be shared, liked, or commented on.

It’s a visual snapshot of what your friends have been doing.

Here’s how Friendsheet works.

Friendsheet was developed by Zach Allia. It’s been liked by 16,500 people, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Photos can be uploaded to Friendsheet, not pinned. Uploaded photos are added to the user’s Facebook page and are made available for friends to scan on Friendsheet.

Friendsheet plugs into your Facebook account and pulls from all of the photos you’ve uploaded there.

Here’s what my Friendsheet looks like. It pulls photos from all of my friends in an ongoing feed, just like Pinterest. It pulls in captions and comments too.
